I recommend this book to beginners just getting started, and to seasoned riders looking for some inspiration and insight. If you are a fan of the blog you will be pleased to know there is plenty of the author's trademark dry wit infused with good advice.
As the author of Watch Your Line (Second Edition): Techniques to Improve Road Cycling Skills, I am very impressed with the amount of material Mr. Brady was able to research, refine, and publish in this book.
You could probably find all of this information on the internet for free, but having it all collected in a single volume like this could save you a lot of hassle.
